We think of herbs and spices as culinary ingredients but in fact most have been used by herbalists and health care practitioners throughout recorded history. Parsley and Oregano are two prime examples.
Parsley is a Mediterranean herb that has been widely used as an ingredient and garnish and has featured strongly in natural health care remedies for over 2000 years. Rich in flavonoids including luteolin, lycopene and beta carotene, Parsley is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Health Care Providers often recommend it as a tonic and aide to digestion.
The more robust Oregano is a popular herb that’s not just for spicing up Mediterranean dishes. Revered as a symbol of happiness by the ancient Greeks and Romans, Oregano is rich in vitamins, minerals and photo-nutrients. With one of the heftiest antioxidant activity ratings, it is used by many herbalists and health care practitioners to help boost the immune system and as an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial agent.
